As a retreat organizer, I am often asked by the people I teach to give them advice on what they can do to enhance their well-being. Time is limited for everyone, of course, but many look to me for learning the little things, the litte secrets that can make their lives better naturally.
It’s no secret that we live in perhaps the most stressful times there ever were. Even if our material comfort is perhaps greater (for those of us privileged enough), the daily grind takes a higher and higher mental toll. Only the levels of information we absorb daily are a huge and incredible source of mental strain, never mind the emotional pressure.
Breakfast isn't just what is eaten in the morning. No, there is more to it. Breakfast helps to set the tone for the day. It determines our mood for the rest of the day, and this explains why it is important to eat healthy especially in the morning.
